here’s a solution that will never, ever get implemented.
…the adjunct problem in academia could be dealt with by setting up a pool of funds that tenured professors could contribute to that would then be redistributed back to adjuncts (solution 3 here). Since so many in academia claim to be in favor of redistributions and bothered by income equality, this should work splendidly. But of course it will never happen, and one is hard-pressed to get tenured academics even to think about the adjunct problem, much less do anything about it.
Thank goodness I’m not bitter.
